ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Young Jaleel F. Cameron continues to lead the way with his humanitarian efforts as he recently used monies raised from selling bottled water on the roadways to buy gifts for children of the Rainbow Children’s Home in Lower Estate on the main island of Tortola.

Cameron and his Group 'Team Jaleel' presented the gifts, which included educational materials and tablets to the Home on Friday December 18, 2015.

“It was just like a little party just to make them feel happy. He played the piano while everyone sang along. Games and snacks were provided and there was a game of basketball. The kids were very pleased,” Jaleel’s mom, Candy I. James told Virgin Islands News Online.

Meanwhile, Jaleel’s grandmother Yvonne James-Tonge commented that in the spirit of Christmas Jaleel decided to give back to the Rainbow Children’s Home, mainly because he has somewhat adopted that home. “Being a child himself he just wanted to make sure that the kids are happy. He bought a tablet for one of the students to assist in homework and educational materials for someone who is autistic.

“He played Christmas tunes on the piano while the children and staff of the home, as well as his group, sang along. We then had a little party and then the boys played basketball.”

The tablet, according to James-Tonge, was co-sponsored by Omega Caribbean.

Other kind acts

On August 19, 2015 ‘Team Jaleel’ made a donation of school clothes and other materials to the Home. The items were secured from friends and family members, as well as a number of businesses and other private individuals.

Further, on July 13, 2015 Mr Cameron presented a cheque valued $20,000 to Government for the purchase of an Electroencephalogram machine for Peebles Hospital.

His fundraising efforts included selling bottled water on the streets of Tortola.

On March 9, 2015 Cameron was given the distinct honour of hoisting the Commonwealth Flag at the Commonwealth Day Ceremony at the Central Administration Complex.

    I think this Rainbow home need a clean up. It is very poor in appearance. the staff not slave and from what I notice some are favor over the other. I believe in team work, so government please take a look into Rainbow home and make a clean up.

    I'm very proud of this young man. Knowing him through church he is a very good example of what a disciple of Christ ought to be. He minsters inside and outside the church. Humble young man attending regular Mid week mass participating in the discussions. Jaleel don't give up God is with you.
